Top 5 Twitter Alternatives You Must Try

There are only two kinds of people in the world, those who are addicted to Twitter and those who don’t like Twitter. If you belong to the latter category, this post is for you. In this post, I am sharing some websites which act as really good alternatives to Twitter. So, without wasting much time, let’s explore these sites.

1. tumblr

Yahoo! owned micro-blogging platform tumblr is used by millions of people across the world. With over 183 million blogs and 83 billion posts (tumblr posts are similar to Tweets) tumblr is ranked as 35th most visited website in the world by Alexa.

tumblr lets you post text, images, videos, links etc without any restriction. If you are new to tumblr, read these tips for better understanding of how things actually work on tumblr.

2. Plurk

Plurk was founded in May 2008 and since then the service has been doing fairly well even though there’s a tough competition from sites like Twitter, tumblr etc. The functionality of Plurk is similar to Twitter but with certain modifications.

  • Plurk allows text posts up to 210 characters (70 characters more than what Twitter allows).
  • Instant messaging option in Plurk lets users chat in real time, which makes this service even more popular.
  • It also allows group conversations.

For everyone who doesn’t like tweeting, try Plurking.

3. is again a very good alternative to Twitter. It’s completely ad free and allows up to 256 characters in text. It started as 30 days free-trail on invitation basis but later became freemium service with a few limitations on free accounts.

With more than 100, 000 users, the community is building up really fast. Check it out.

4. is similar to tumblr. Here you can post text, links, pictures, quotes or videos without any limit or restriction. Other features include auto posting from other social networks such as Flickr, tumblr, Twitter etc ; reposting of content from other blogs, semi private access to blogs.

If you are looking for a tumblr like alternative to Twitter, then you can try out this service.

5. Keek

Keek is totally different from all other services mentioned in the post. Keek is basically ‘Twitter for videos’. It allows sharing of videos which are less than 36 seconds in duration. Users can create short duration videos right from their smartphone and publish it on Keek.

Keek also provides private messaging feature via text or video.

Keek has grown tremendously since its inception. According to the stats mentioned on Wikipedia, Keek has now reached 58 million users and 250,000 new users sign up daily. This app is worth giving a try.

  • If you want an app with no restriction of posting death threats, use parler like Trump supporters use since Twitter banned Trump’s account.

  • So I gather from all this GAB that there are no TRULY FREE speech Twitter alternatives out there that are reliable. I haven’t for example been able to fine a link on Parler which allows me to complete a SIGN-UP.

  • If they were Zionist they would not be allowing islamist tweets against Israel. Check your definitions before throwing out racialist remarks.

    • They are probably staffed by commies who “Think” they are majority. Only in their minds.

    • Twitter has been taken over by the Zionist mobsters that are excellent at getting mass accounts closed using the feablist of reasons. At the rate its going it will be done for and the only tweeters will be zionists peddling crap to themselves.

      • ‘Zionist mobsters?’ Dude, twitter is absolutely full of genuine Nazis, who make the place unusable with their stupid conspiracy nonsense and desire to literally kill people. ‘Zionists’. No one talks about Zionism on twitter. What you mean is ‘Jews’. You just don’t have the balls to say it.

      • I have the guts to say “Jew”. Want to tell me your real name and addresss?

      • Yes, Zionist totalitarians run Twitter and just about all other social media. They tore off my account for our religious organization because it is Odinist, and also GoDaddy tore off my websites, for the same reason as did Facebook. We need some actual free speech social media that is not run by Jewish supremacists.
